Really not worth the price, it doesn't even have weather sealing.

sony states that the fe90 is a "Dust and moisture-resistant design", so no that's wrong.

there's no mount rubber gasket around the Sony.

there is far more to weather sealing than one gasket.

I really dislike the 90mm macro from Sony. Sigma's macro is better built in my opinion.

you don't own either of those lenses, or any sony gear for that matter.

I own, plenty, but whatever.

yeah right.

Also Sony's OIS doesn't coordinate with the IBIS, so completely useless. Sigma 105 macro DG DN looks to be much better overall, from build quality to functionality.

that sigma lens doesn't have any optical stabilization at all, but of course you didn't know that, you are just out here to bash sony.



the sigma 105 also has a weak focus-by-wire implementation; the fe90 is better for manual focusing because sony improved their focus-by-wire functionality years ago.

Sony 90mm also is also focus by wire but with a clutch.

it has a clutch but that's not focus by wire... what sony developed with focus by wire is called "Linear Response MF"

the fe90 is five-star rated on b&h, with 297 reviews, it's an outstanding lens: Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS Lens SEL90M28G B&H Photo Video (
